The fuel that powers passenger planes is normally among the most expensive oil products, but in a sign of the times the coronavirus has turned it into a blending component for typically cheaper shipping fuel.

Straight-run kerosene, usually processed into jet fuel, is now being used to make very low-sulfur fuel oil for the maritime industry amid a plunge in consumption by airlines. Higher than normal amounts of diesel and vacuum gas oil are also finding their way into shipping fuel.

Rapid Transitioning to Blended Online Learning

HYDERABAD, India, Sept. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In order to address the situation prevailing due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the educational sector, the central and state Ministries of HRD, UGC and various state level education departments have started promoting only the eContent repositories and virtual meeting platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams etc. for conducting live sessions. Providing access to eContent and conducting live sessions do not guarantee meaningful learning to students nor track their engagement.    

With an intent to prevent academic year loss for students and to continue teaching during the period of global disruption, ICFAI Business School (IBS) has transformed its teaching-learning-assessment processes into more engaging and impactful through an integrated blended online learning approach, i.e. blending synchronous-asynchronous. IBS eLearning Department has taken the following initiatives to make rapid and smooth transition to blended online learning.
